When I hit the link: http://www.archive.org/details-db.php?mediatype=movies&identifier=VotergateTheMovie

...I get an error message: "The combination of mediatype and identifier yielded no results"

What does this mean? Is the Votergate video available or not?

PS - in case it matters, I use the Opera browser.

I cannot get it to work either ... and votergate.tv seems to be having problems as well.

This item was involved in a rights dispute and has been removed while the parties involved work out the rights issues. Hopefully we will be able to make it available again, but probably not in the near future.

If people are interested, there's more information about this video at the following website:

You may need to register at demonoid to check it out, and if you're really interested you'll want to have BitTorrent installed :)

Could you explain the "rights dispute"? Does that mean that the people who made the film don't want it to be distributed, or what? I feel this is a very important issue (the possiblility that the election was stolen) and information about it should not be supressed in a casual manner.

There is an ongoing dispute between the makers of two films called "votergate" over trademark and copyright issues. Both parties agreed that it was important to have these films up before the election, but asked that we remove them from our site once the election was over. I can't speak further to this issue as all of the details are not known, but we understand that this is an important issue and if we could continue to host these films we would.

In other words, this video was too controversial and was taken down because it exposes the truth.
